355 Field Experience: Week 5 (2nd/3rd Grade)
Students were having a "carnival" day in class. This included a bounce house, the Wii fit, walking on stilts, and other stations. This class seemed to be a little more hyper than usual and my master teacher informed me about one of the students special needs. One student in particular he informed me of how he had ADHD and that he was highly medicated. It just so happened that the student hadn't taken his medication that day and he was more of a distraction than usual. Knowing this was the case, my master teacher seemed to have a little more patience with him but at the same time he was very concentrated on making sure he stated his expectations early and often and constantly reminded the student of classroom behavior to keep him in check and to avoid him becoming a distraction to his classmates.
